Paul Millsap needed just five attempts from the field and four from the line to get to 14 points in a 102-93 win over the Bulls on Friday, adding nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers in only 24 minutes.
That is a fantastic, prototypical Millsap line. His fantasy owners have seen shades of the player they drafted lately. In his last 11, Millsap averaged 19.5 points, 8.1 boards, 4.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.4 treys. The news of him reportedly not on the block along with the Hawks going 10-2 in their last 12 is great for his value. Jan 21 - 2:15 AM

Paul Millsap scored 17 points during a big 108-107 win over the Knicks on Monday, adding seven rebounds, six assists, three steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer.

He had a game-sealing block of Derrick Rose to get this win. Millsap didn't shoot the ball well in this game, making just 5-of-18 from the field and 6-of-10 from the line in 39 minutes. Dwight Howard (rest) did not play, which has been a helpful scenario for Millsap all season. The Hawks are also winning games and have gone 9-1 in their last 10, so maybe he stays put.
Jan 16 - 4:43 PM

Paul Millsap scored 23 points in 40 minutes during a tough 103-101 loss to the Celtics on Friday, adding five rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

The Hawks reportedly told Millsap he's off the block, which is fantastic news for his fantasy value. He's also turned into that stat-stuffing monster we've grown accustom to love, averaging 17.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.0 blocks, 2.0 steals and 0.8 treys in his last five.
Jan 14 - 12:50 AM

Atlanta GM Wes Wilcox has reportedly begun to inform teams that Paul Millsap is not for sale.

Millsap publicly proclaimed that it would be his preference to remain in Atlanta, so the Hawks are probably feeling pretty confident that they'll be able to retain him as a free agent, thus having no need to unload him this season. Millsap is still adapting to playing alongside Dwight Howard, and he's only been a fourth-round guy on the year so far, but as the chemistry continues to build in Atlanta he should be able to flirt with top-20 status.
Jan 9 - 5:04 PM

Paul Millsap scored 17 points during a 99-94 win over the Pelicans on Thursday, adding 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

He is now the most likely impact player to be traded. Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution says that the Kings have interest in Millsap, which would be a fantastic landing spot for him. Adrian Wojarowski of The Vertical says a Millsap trade is "on deck" for the Hawks following the Kyle Korver deal. He may not be able to be a top-20 player on another team, but his fantasy owners should expect him to still be an early-round guy because of how he does so much more than scoring.
Jan 5 - 11:38 PM

The Hawks are actively in trade talks with several teams on Paul Millsap, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Here we go. The Hawks have made it very clear they will be selling off their pieces and Millsap should easily fetch them the best return. He's fared extremely well with the Hawks on the stat sheet thanks to doing so many different things. He may take a small hit in fantasy, but it's worth a mention he is having his worst year for efficiency this season. His fantasy owners shouldn't be too uncomfortable with a deal unless he backs up a superstar power forward.
Jan 5 - 8:48 PM

Paul Millsap said that his preference would be to remain in Atlanta.

"Rumors are rumors," Millsap said Tuesday before the Hawks departed for a four-game road trip. "I think we know that. Been down this road before. I think we talked at the beginning of the year that it wasn’t going to be the first or the last time. It is what it is. Whatever happens, I think everybody knows where my heart is and where I want to be." Millsap's name has begun to surface in the rumor mill, as has Kyle Korver and Thabo Sefolosha's, but nothing is imminent at the moment.
Jan 4 - 11:08 AM

According to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Paul Millsap is not on the trading block.

Marc Stein of ESPN reported on Sunday that the Hawks have started "listening" to offers for Millsap, but it sounds like the team is simply doing their due diligence. Contrary to some reports, Millsap still hasn't decided if he will opt out of the final year of his deal this summer, but the Hawks could potentially lose him for nothing which is why they're entertaining the idea of a trade. The Hawks have won three straight games and are still trying to figure out if the pieces on their roster fit well together, but they have well over a month before the deadline to make a decision regarding a trade. His fantasy value should be safe regardless.
Jan 2 - 9:36 AM

Paul Millsap finished Sunday's overtime win with 13 rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers en route to 32 points (11-of-23 FGs, 7-of-10 FTs), the most he's scored against the Spurs in his 11-year career.

The Hawks have reportedly been "listening" to trade offers for Millsap, who could opt to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. This is firmly in the 'rumor' stage and Millsap should still rack up elite value even if he is dealt somewhere prior to the deadline.

The Hawks have reportedly begun "listening" to trade offers for Paul Millsap.

Dwight Howard is on the books for another two years, while Millsap will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so the Hawks may want to consider trading him away now if they feel they're in danger of losing him for nothing as a free agent. For what it's worth, "listening" essentially means that Atlanta is just doing their due diligence, and nothing is imminent on the trade front regarding Millsap.
Jan 1 - 6:07 PM

Paul Millsap scored 26 points in a 105-98 win over the Pistons on Friday, adding six rebounds, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

That's the Millsap his fantasy owners drafted. Millsap has recently had some trouble playing next to Dwight Howard, but he was able to be aggressive with eight attempts from the stripe. There's still a chance to buy low on The Sapper.

Paul Millsap (eye) scored 12 points on 4-of-20 shooting in Wednesday's win over the Knicks.

His right eye was noticeably swollen, but he logged 41 minutes and added seven rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks and a triple. Millsap has cooled off with Dwight Howard back in the lineup and he's shooting a combined 18-of-66 (27.7 percent) over his last four games, but there's a lot of buy-low appeal here.

Updating a previous report, Paul Millsap (eye) will play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

Millsap is dealing with a very swollen right eye, but he played through the ailment on Monday, and that trend will continue on Wednesday night. Millsap struggled against the Wolves on Monday, but he should be able to bounce back tonight with a much more favorable matchup against the Knicks.

Paul Millsap said his swollen right eye does not impact his vision.

Millsap caught an elbow to the face on Monday, and while his eye is still very swollen, it doesn't seem like this is an issue that will force him to spend any time on the sidelines. Still, just to be safe owners should confirm his status prior to tip-off.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 12:09:00 PM

Paul Millsap was elbowed in the right eye on Monday vs. the Wolves and is expected to visit a doctor.

His eye was very swollen after the game but he was able to play through the issue. The Hawks are off until Wednesday vs. the Knicks, but his owners can expect an update on Tuesday afternoon. Millsap had one of the worst games of his season on Monday with seven points (2-of-13 FGs), five rebounds and a steal, but assuming he plays, he should bounce back against a Knicks' team that is ranked in the bottom five for defensive efficiency.
